Pulitzer prizewinning writer Richard Ford (United States) is the master of elegantly observed and beautifully written slices of suburban American life. His critically acclaimed novels include Independence Day, Let Me Be Frank With You, and The Sportswriter which was the first instalment in his much loved series based around the colourful character Frank Bascombe. Now, Ford returns with the fifth Bascombe novel Be Mine, a laugh-out-loud and moving portrait of an unshakable father-and-son bond. In conversation with Liz Grant.

“One of his generation’s most eloquent voices.”
New York Times



Richard was in conversation with Kim Hill on RNZ in September 2023
